Finally Eating Out Again (For An Instant)

I miss dining out.

I miss leaving the house, driving across town, and sitting down for a good meal. No matter how good a cook you are, I just feel like a professionally prepared meal is better.

The Governor of California’s rule against indoor dining is starting to really get under my skin.

It’s bad enough that I have been forced to cancel our trip to Vancouver, our Panama Canal cruise and now our Hawaiian vacation, but we can’t even go out to eat.

We’ve tried bringing food home, but by the time it gets transported the ½ hour from our favorite restaurant, it’s cold and usually a bit soggy.

The last time I sat down and ate in a restaurant was Feb 29th. But that was fast food.

My last trip to a real sit-down restaurant was the Japanese place near my house on Feb 15th.

There was a brief bright spot when for a couple of weeks, we could eat indoors, but that joy was fleeting, as Governor Dipstick reimposed the dining ban.

Me being happy to dine-in last June, before dining was banned again.

During that brief pause of the insanity, we managed to snag a table at the Yardhouse Restaurant in Rancho Cucamonga.

The Yardhouse is known for their amazing selection of beers, which you can get in a yard-glass.

Even with the paired down menu they offered, I was just happy to eat out again.

A simple bacon cheeseburger with truffle fries. 

The town I live in has started to certify restaurants for in house dining, I can’t wait for a few more of the places near home qualify
